Hi everyone, just joined this forum couple of days ago. My partner and I are from the Wirral (Merseyside) I am due to retire in March 2014 and have been looking to purchase a holiday/retirement place in the Altinkum area. We have previously been looking in the Fethyie/Calais area for some years but have noticed that property seems a bit cheaper in this area for a 2 bed apartment with pool.
We are thinking of coming over in May to have a look at some property, can anyone recommend a reputable agent and best area to buy.
All advice greatfull Cath camera 274.jpgy received.

Rent first to give you time to better understand the area, to see if you can live long term in the area and whats on offer. Price isn't everything.

We retired this time last year and bought a property in Akbuk which is about 20 mins drive from Altinkum. Depending on what type of area you want have a look round the Akbuk area. It is more peaceful than Altinkum and not as built up but yet only a car or bus ride away .

Welcome to the forum

You will find some good advice, also success and horror stories if you search the forums.
We came out here with the intention of buying a property as my wife and I took early retirement. But after looking a various types of property and areas we decided not to buy at all, we have rented a penthouse near Alanya for the last year, but have now outgrown the area and are in the process of moving up towards Bodrum area. Very happy we did not buy here now.
If you are thinking of buying please research the area fully as it can change dramatically in and out of the tourist season.
Rent first preferably for a year and get a feel of whats it is like, then if you are happy there are loads of properties for sale as the market is still very slow at the moment.
Turkey is still a lovely place to live once you take off the rose colored tourist glasses and see the reality, do not trust anyone of the many "friends" you will make as the majority of Turks will try to rip you off if they can.
Good Luck in which ever way you decide to go.

Hi Turkeylovers, and welcome to the forum, Firstly when you do decide to move out to Turkey best thing to do is Rent as it has been suggested, as later if you dont like where you are living,Very difficult to sell and move on,İf you rent it very easy to move on......Best of luck to you...as Turkey and life style is Brilliant.
